Past research has suggested that people from Asian countries might engage differently in the development and maintenance of PTSD. Understanding this difference has a significant impact on the development of treatments for victims from culturally diverse backgrounds. In particular, the study is hoping to look at whether east-Asian population have different emotional regulation and appraisal strategies concerning traumatic events.
